Bertrand will be sidelined for at least six weeks after he had minor surgery on both knees 10 days ago, The Guardian reports.

The surgery will certainly put a dent into Bertrand's preseason training, and with the Premier League opener less than five weeks away, it looks highly likely that he will not open the season fit and starting.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bertrand enjoyed an excellent 2014-15 season, as he helped Southampton to the second best defensive record in the Premier League and earned his first senior cap for the English national team.

The versatile 25-year-old proved his worth on both sides of the ball, as he consistently excelled in his defensive responsibilities and even earned a handful of spot starts in midfield thanks to his technical ability. Southampton agreed on a deal with Chelsea in January to make his loan deal permanent, and with a clear mind regarding his future, Bertrand is poised to make even bigger strides next season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bertrand provided a single cross during Southampton's 2-0 victory over Hull City on Saturday.

The English fullback wasn't as involved offensively in this one as he normally is, but Southampton cruised to victory nonetheless and the clean sheet bonus is always nice. Bertrand will be a strong option once again when the Saints take on Stoke City next weekend.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bertrand had a quiet game against Everton on Saturday, supplying just one cross and picking up a yellow card in the 21st minute.

The 25-year-old Englishman's struggles can be attributed to the added responsibility of tracking Leighton Baines, who poses a significant attacking threat from his left-back position. Expect Bertrand to bounce back next week versus Hull City.

Bertrand was solid in Southampton's 2-0 victory over Burnley on Saturday, providing six crosses en route to another clean-sheet.

Bertrand's activity on the offensive end and Southampton's stellar defensive record make him a strong play no matter who the opposition may be. He will look to continue his excellent campaign against Everton next time around.

Bertrand returned to the lineup in Southampton's 1-0 loss to West Brom on Saturday, playing 90 minutes and supplying seven crosses while playing in a more advanced position.

Any hope for a clean sheet was spoiled in the second minute in this one, but Bertrand was able to remain productive thanks to his new role. While he should slot back into his natural fullback position in short order, he is an attractive option nonetheless against Crystal Palace on Tuesday.
